Liz McCormick writes:  “If anyone is prepared to write a review of the 4th edition and post it on or this edition will begin collecting its stars!  I’m not sure how good a selling point it is but the 2nd and 3rd editions already have a number of stars, and it's all about introducing CAT to the wider world of self help and training.

Thank you!“  Liz

Below are some reviews of the book:

‘An unusual self- help book with real depth' | Sue Gerhardt, author of Why Love Matters: How Affection Shapes a Baby's Brain.

'This is a good book made better. It retains the clear writing and useful exercises of earlier editions but manages to invite an even more comprehensive exploration of the self' |  Dr Anthony Ryle, pioneer of CAT at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals.

'This is a really welcome guide to modern therapy - blending traditional psychological wisdom with a practical cognitive programme that anyone can follow' |  Philip Hodson, psychotherapist and broadcaster.
